Narrow escape for pedestrians as large tree falls down

A large tree at the junction of South Ealing Road and Little Ealing Lane was blown over on Sunday afternoon (5 July 2020).

Amazing footage of the tree just suddenly falling over and pedestrians leaping out of the way was caught by Joanna Wolman on her car’s dashboard camera while she was stopped at the traffic lights, and tweeted by Ealing councillor Jon Ball.

There’s a bit of swearing as you can hear the people in the car reacting to what they’re seeing.
